Jay-Z will be putting his music career on hold, so he can spend time with his baby. "I thought I would be more inspired to have all these new feelings to talk about, but I really just want to hang out with my daughter," he explained. "I want to enjoy this time for what it is." [Billboard]

Janet Jackson, on the other hand, revealed that she'll be spending the summer working on her new album. "I'll be working! Basically what I'm doing now; starting the process of getting the songs, of getting everything together for the album." [ThatGrapeJuice]

Though Mystikal is back in the clink, serving out an 81-day prison sentence for domestic abuse (hey, at least it wasn't rape!?), to hold fans over, the troubled rapper will be releasing a new mixtape, Origins, on July 30, around his release. [MTV]

El Debarge recently credited 50 Cent and Babyface for checking him into his latest rehab stint, and revealed that he had plans to work with Whitney Houston, just days before she died. "She said 'I need you, I wanna finish my album, I want you to sing with me...' I was just happy that she embraced me like that, and I wanted to do something, but the next thing I know, she was gone."

J. Cole has announced that he and Kendrick Lamar will be releasing a joint album. At least that means new Kendrick joints. [HipHopDX]

Not really sure what the new obsession with Moscato is all about, but apparently Murphy Lee of the St. Lunatics has a new after-dinner drink called "Freaky Muscato" in stores. "I'm a wino, so it was a perfect situation for me, but it's a sparkling moscato, it's a dessert wine. It's crazy, and good as shit, man ... It's sweet enough for the ladies and strong enough for the men. The bottle crazy; you can sit up in the club and act like you cool, all that, man. Why get drunk, when you can get freaky?" Sounds terrible. [AllHipHop]
